That ole' two faced, back-bitin' fake chick who would
smile in your face and talk about you behind your back
in a heartbeat.
She hated Mondays and looked forward to
Fridays as gettin' ready for the weekend
to get her club and her drink on.
That girl had no problem screwin' every Tom, Dick
and Scary, as long as he was bringin' it - most times
in the form of next month's rent or car payment.
This chick had no problem smokin' and sexin' on
Saturday night, then going to church, lifting up
sin-smeared hands then praising the Lord
on Sunday morning.
She often would lie to make herself look good
in front of others, to further her own agenda, or
simply because she could and get away
She'd drop a dollar in the offering
bucket every time it came around, while saying
to herself, "God know my heart. He know I ain't
got no money!"
You see, I had to take care of that chick.
Right around the corner in the alley of Detroit.
I had to set her down; she lifted up her hands
alright, right in front of me, then cried out with
a loud voice as passersby heard and looked
They all witnessed the day that she died.
You see, I didn't kill her. I didn't have to.
She killed herself.
The old man.
Or shall I say the old woman.
She had to go.
Besides, after the long heartfelt talk we had
in the alley, I discovered she was sick of being fake,
and she had it up to here with lying to herself
and to her God.
So she took herself out of her own misery, and
put herself in the grave. But you know what, she's
She looks the same, she even sounds
the same, but on the inside, she's changed.
She doesn't lie anymore, she doesn't cheat
anymore, and she's abstinent now 'til marriage.
She loves God with all her heart, mind, body, soul
and strength. Like the song says, she's 'surrendered
all' - everything, she's given it all to God and told
Him to take control.
So now everytime I see her, she has this big smile on
With renewed hope and joy in her heart,
she now often shares a kind word, a prayer, or
even a few extra dollars in my hand.
I like this new chick, or shall I see this beautiful
woman of God, my renewed sister in Christ
who has blossomed and is becoming all God
predestined her to be in the first place... even before
the foundation of the world.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17
